NSC Estimates Show Motor Vehicle-Related Deaths Up 9 Percent
August 26, 2016 - Preliminary estimates from the National Safety Council show motor vehicle deaths have increased 9 percent through the first six months of 2016 from the first half of 2015. An estimated 19,100 people have been killed on U.S. roads since January, and 2.2 million people were seriously injured.
In addition, NSC is projecting that 438 people will be killed in motor vehicle-related incidents over the upcoming Labor Day weekend.
“Our complacency is killing us,” Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of NSC, said in a press release. “Americans should demand change to prioritize safety actions and protect ourselves from one of the leading causes of preventable death.”
NSC and NDSC offer the following tips for safe driving:
  • Make sure every passenger buckles up on every trip.
  • Never use a cell phone or hands-free device when driving.
  • Designate an alcohol- and drug-free driver, or arrange alternate transportation.
  • Get plenty of sleep and take regular breaks to avoid fatigue.

Back-To-School Safety Tips
August 18, 2016 - Summer vacation is coming to an end and children will soon be back in the classroom. Though they are in the care of others during the school day, parents must ensure their kids have the necessary tools and knowledge to stay safe.
The North Dakota Safety Council provides the following safety tips for this back-to-school season:
  • Pedestrian Safety – Children under 10 years of age should cross the street with an adult. Older children should be taught how to safely cross the street, including putting away their cell phones and removing earbuds.
  • Playground Safety – Teach children that pushing, shoving, or crowding while on the playground can be dangerous. Make sure they are dressed appropriately for the weather and remove necklaces, purses, scarves or drawstrings that could get caught on equipment.
  • Home Safety – According the American Red Cross, no child less than eight years of age should be left alone for an extended period of time. If your child is responsible enough to be home alone, post emergency phone numbers and practice an emergency plan.
  • School Bus Safety – When riding on the bus, students should be taught to stay in their seat, avoid distracting the driver, keep aisles clear of books and bags, and to wait for the bus to stop completely before getting out of their seat. If your child has to cross in front of the bus when getting off, they should walk at least 10 feet ahead until the driver can see them.
  • Backpack Recommendations – The American Chiropractic Association recommends a backpack weighs no more than 10 percent of a child’s weight and is no wider or longer than your child’s torso. It should be equipped with padded back and shoulder straps, reflective material, and have multiple compartments to better distribute the weight.
